Beware! Some locally-published guides have pretty pictures but the plants may have been misidentified. Check to make sure that a professional botanist has verified the identifications before trusting these books. Field guides from recognized national publishing houses, the University of California Press, and those offered by the California Native Plant Society are reliable.
